Yea I have a sump/refuge and it had the macro in there and some caulerpa as well. I took it all out because thats where the HA started then ended up in my DT. I kept the Macro and put it in my overflow so it would be close to my light and my Yellow Tang kept eating it when it was in my DT lol. I tossed the caulerpa because ive read that if the lights are not on 24/7 they can cloudy up your water by spawning. I killed the lighting above the sump to eliminate the HA in the sump. thanks again everyone.

WOW Ive been on shift for the last 72 hours and come home to at least half my HA gone! Cutting the lights down to 4 hours a day did the trick! Thanks to all that helped!
